This pack is by writers from the Ministry of Stories, a creative writing charity that champions the writer in every child. In it, you will find ideas and activities to help you write your own stories inspired by the best-selling book, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.
We recommend using these activities with children in Years 3-6. They’re great for looking at non-fiction, narrative, direct speech and women in history and for inspiring creative writing in general – particularly for those who may struggle to get writing.
Parents and Carers
Try these at home with your children aged 7-11. We encourage you to have a go at writing a story too as writing together can be really beneficial for children’s confidence and enjoyment.
Don’t worry too much about spelling and grammar when you’re doing these activities, we care more about your ideas. As one of our 7 year old writers says, ‘Think bold. Think like an owl’. These activities are for girls and boys to help them enjoy the book and write about women they admire.
